Dark Souls II

  Dark Souls II sure is shit compared to Dark Souls I. I like the way they improved connectivity, but that's just about the only improvement. In terms of art, most the game looks worse than Dark Souls I. The Dragon area and all the bits with water look pretty cool though.

Oddly, they made it much easier to do inter-player actions, in terms of co-op and helping people doing PVP, but they made PVP items so rare that you never get the chance to do it. I spent maybe five hours in the covenant to help people in PVP, and it never triggered. I'm glad I'm not a completist: you have to help dozens of people in PVP to unlock all the rewards.


I didn't really care when they took out Derpy's name from that one episode, but I do disapprove of them choosing to take someone that had a mild eye problem, and deciding that she must be retarded.

I'm fine with her being a screw-up. Derpy doesn't have to be a genius; I don't like the connection between Physical Difference = Mental Disability.

Yes, I'm hitting this issue well over a year after this whole controversy has been forgotten.
